Corona comment

It is our firm committment to meet 2022 as planned in Garmisch. However, in case the Pandemic situation will unexpectedly deteriorate again, the conference will be changed to a virtual format as experienced in 2021. Final decision will be made in October 2021. In case a change to a virtual format is necessary, information about change and the fee for the virtual conference will be provided to those who have pre-registered (see page 'Dates and Registration').

Update December: New and unexpected developments in the virus situation and the emerging of a new virus mutation will probably force us to cancel the face-to-face meeting and to switch to an online meeting again.
